Mana Party leader Hone Harawira has said they would not look to work with Kim Dotcom's Internet Party any time soon.

In a statement released tonight, Mr Harawira said liasing with Mr Dotcom's party - to be launched on Thursday - would not be in Mana's best interests.

"Dotcom would have to commit to getting rid of National and changing the Government before Mana would consider any deal with his Internet Party,'' he said.

"That's a bottom line for Mana. I resigned from the Maori Party because their relationship with National was - and continues to be - destructive to Maori. We won't be going back there for anyone.''


Mr Harawira's comments come as Mana member and veteran activist Sue Bradford threatened to leave the party if any deals were made with the Internet Party.
